Would it be possible to add an option "search for complete words"?. Just now I am making a search for a difficult term (chime), and I come up with many references that include these letters, such as "chimenea", which have nothing to do with my search.

The glossary is very valuable, and we could save time if it had that option.

Would this be possible, Henry?

I agree Feb 22, 2004

I often felt the same when doing glossary searches. It's especially annoting if you do a search for short words in several languages.

You can do it now Feb 22, 2004

A space both before and after the word will do. It's a strange solution at first but once you get used to it, it works.

I never would have imagined the solution was that simple.
